No. You risk your account being banned permanently. If your book is enrolled in KDP Select (of which Kay Yu is a part), it can't be available anywhere else, whether free or not.

Even if not in Select, if you have the book free somewhere else, the Zon may still get hacked off with you and tell you to take it down. You're not supposed to sell it anywhere else cheaper than on A'zon.

They could possibly decide to price-match at free, but if it's actually on your own website, they're far more likely to just warn you once and then kick you out.

Hope that helps. J

You asked about Kin*dle Un*limited. Therefore, your book is in Select. Read the terms and conditions.

I would think so. Just as long as you are not giving it away free or selling it elsewhere, you should be OK.
